Adoration is to respect; reverence; strong admiration or devotion. The term comes from the Latin adōrātiō, meaning “to give homage or worship to someone or something.”
LFC’S 21 Day Fast is coming to a close today and there is no better way to finish than with Adoration to our Savior, Jesus Christ, our soon coming King of Kings.
Today, it is all about worship and adoration, praise and glory to our God. Prayer requests or petitions can wait, no murmuring or complaining. No waiting for God to move and no worries about our next breath. It is simply all about God…and Adoration.
The first 8 verses in Isaiah chapter 6 give great insight into what it does for a child of God when they finds themselves in the presence of Almighty God.
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Isaiah 6:1-8 KJV)
Isaiah found himself in the presence of God and the impact on him was life-changing:
- He saw Worship! He saw powerful angels who were created to spend eternity Adoring God. Yet, God dwells in our praise. (Psalm 22:3)
- He saw that the entire earth was full of God’s glorious presence.
- Isaiah realized that he was a sinner amongst sinners.
- There was no doubt as to WHO he was in the presence of.
- He was changed! His sin was completely removed.
- Isaiah responded to God’s call. He couldn’t wait to share the Gospel.
21 days of fasting together. Our spiritual senses are sharper, we understand more clearly that every day we are in the presence of God. Today, we find ourselves in the very place that Isaiah was. This 21st day is not an end of an event…this is the beginning of a renewed life of worship and witness. Heavenly Father, Precious Savior, Holy Ghost, WE ADORE YOU!
